About

This is a chance to make a real difference for an abused or neglected child. We will give you all the training and support you need to become a child's advocate. You will join a corps of amazing CASAs, be assigned a child's case, investigate the facts, speak to the court on the child's behalf (our judges WANT TO HEAR FROM OUR CASAS), visit the child in foster care or their placement, and ake sure the child is getting everything they need to be healthy and whole. You will be the only un-paid person in this child's life during this time, making a profound impact on their life.

Must pass a background check, screenings, successfully complete training, and be 21 years or older. Ongoing training is also required along with a two year commitment--the average length of a child welfare case (sometimes shorter). Call our office for more information, come for an orientation, we have children waiting for CASAs.
